    IID 2173 Digital Logic Design

    This course introduces fundamental concepts and methods of digital electronics. It covers topics on Boolean algebra, De Morgan Theorem, Karnaugh Map, logic gates, arithmetic circuits, flip-flops, counters, coder and decoder, shift register, A/D and D/A converters, introduction to microprocessor- based system and TTL and CMOS.

     IAD 1233 Discrete Mathematics

    Discrete mathematics is the mathematics of discrete objects and their binding relationships. This study of finite systems has become increasingly important as the computer has advanced since the second half of the last century. The digital computer is basically a finite structure and many of its properties can be understood and interpreted within the framework of finite mathematical systems. Assuming no prior knowledge of the subject area, this course provides students with an indispensable guide to computer science.

     IID 1233 Operations Research

    Since most of industries nowadays are becoming complex, competitive and dynamic, the decision- making process is becoming complicated as well. Making decision is of the essence but merely insufficient. What matters is to provide the best decision for the organization. In the field of operations research (OR), this is known as optimal solutions. With rapid technological developments especially computers, lots of methods for making decisions are in place. Decision makers are to apply methods that are objective, effective and efficient to achieve a huge success. OR is a scientific approach against decision-making process to determine the best method to design and manage a system that is subject to distributions of scarce resources. OR bears six characteristics: research on operation, scientific approach, practical organizational management, overall perspective, optimal solution and team-working approach. In conclusion, OR is concerned with a modeling of system from an actual situation and a finding of optimal decision. Assuming no prior knowledge of the subject area, this course provides students with an indispensable guide to OR.

     IID 2233 Modeling and Simulation

    The term simulation is normally used to describe the process of executing computer programs with user-selected parameters and input data so as to simulate a system under prescribed conditions. Computer simulation methods are amongst the most commonly approaches within operations management and manufacturing engineering. This course covers the art and science of simulation in general. This course also teaches the skills required to apply simulations successfully to help improving the running of a business. Modern simulation packages are valuable aids in designing a simulation model. Given a precisely defined model of a system, it is possible to produce computer programs that implement the model and allow the system to be simulated. Without a proper approach however, the results of a simulation project can be incorrect or misleading. This course looks at each of the tasks required in a simulation project. It emphasizes the practical application of simulation with a good understanding of how a simulation model works being an essential part of this.

     IAD 2133 Object-oriented Programming

    This course covers basic object-oriented programming concepts by applying objects and classes. The students shall learn how to write object-oriented codes. At the end of the syllabus, the students will explore how all the object-oriented programming concepts and language will help in developing real world applications.

     IID 3163 Automation Systems

    The contents of course embrace four main parts namely manufacturing systems, automation and control technologies, material handling technologies and manufacturing support systems. The manufacturing systems are systems functioning to execute one or more processing and assembly operations on raw materials and workparts. These processing and assembly operations are carried out by using automation technologies without human interventions. The automation technologies such as robot and programmable logic controller are implemented through the programs incorporated with the control systems to perform the instructions. The material handling technologies are material movement, storage, protection and control technologies encompassing manufacturing and distribution processes such as conveyor, automated storage and retrieval system, forklift and automated guided vehicle. The material handling must be done safely, efficiently, on cheaper cost, punctually, on correct quantity and location and free of failure. The final part is manufacturing support systems referring to computerized systems applied to manage the production and solve logistical and technical problems such as warehouse management system.

     IID 3153 Inventory Control and MRP

    Holding cost is expensive and problems of inventory control are almost universal. Over the past decade, organizations have been trying to improve customer services while lowering stocks and increasing the speed of material flow through their supply chains. As stocks are almost universal, the basic question is, why do organizations hold stocks? The main answer is to allow for variations and uncertainties in supply and demand. They give a buffer between suppliers and customers maintaining customer services even when there are problems in the supply chain. Unfortunately, this safeguard comes at a high price and organizations are continually looking for ways of reducing their inventory costs without affecting services. In recent years, this search has led to many changes. Scientific inventory control is still at the core of inventory management but it has been enhanced by requirement planning and just-in-time with e-commerce giving a fast and efficient flow of material through an integrated supply chain.
